Hello Warm Showers Team!
Just wanted to let you know that I'm planning to do a tour by bike of Nova Scotia and New Foundland (Halifx to Saint John's) and I'll be interested to hear from you guys if you have some tips, especially regarding:
- biking infrastructure: seems like there a lot of non-protected roadways there...can anyone who's done it confirm it to me and tell me how he/she did it?
- lodging: would you recommend camping in October, and even November in these season or is everything already closed?
Looking forward to exchange with you some information about this exciting trip and wish you a pleasant rest of the week!
I'm looking to tour the perimeter of Ireland. I see there are lots of hosts around the country - does anyone have any tips for an American experiencing bike touring in Ireland (or Europe, for that matter) for the first time?
We are a cycling family from Ukraine - dad, mom and 5 year old boy. The three of us have been traveling for a long time, a lot and far.
You can learn about all our travels from our vlog - http://www.youtube.com/c/DvokolisniHroniky
On October 7, we will start a cycling trip from Barcelona to Lisbon by the sea and ocean (of course, we allow a depth of several tens of kilometers inland).
We will be happy to meet local people to learn more about the culture and lifestyle of those regions. This will be our first time in Spain and Portugal. We will also be grateful for any advice and tips online.
Planning to start In marseille on the 9th of October. Then to Cassis or La Ciotat to catch a train to Menton. Then follow the EV8 more or less on our way to Avignon. Maybe swing up to Mt Ventoux for a bit. Let us know if you're in the area
I have a crazy plan to cycle from Penzance, in Cornwall, to London.
I have friends in Devon I can stop off with - but curious as to what are the most manageable and scenic routes for that journey.
I would appreciate very much receiving invitations to stay for 1 night in your place.
Thanks in advance,
I will start shortly with my #WorldGraceRide leaving Europe for Africa (middle of Germany, crossing into France (down along the Rhone), along the Sea Med. taking the ferry from Sete to Morocco).
I wanted to take the ferry from Spain (Almeria) but the borders are still closed.
I will cycle south between the coast line and the Sahara desert, hopefully cycling in to Senegal in January.
I am looking to volunteer my time and talents along the way. Obviously, I appreciate invitations!
Did you watch the videos or Nomad's Trails? They went through Morocco and the Sahara. Mostly by bicycle (there was a part they had a lift by a truck or so). See here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLVj8O2eJeN1ydK2Nig-1YrLiyoO9uaEYq
thank you for commenting and sharing! I saw and watched their videos. Honestly, I follow them since they are on the road. That time, they could still make the trip through Spain, which is now closed. I am looking forward to the beauty and diversity of the African continent.
With regards to your next trip; please, please, please remember to record feedback for your hosts and guests, it is most mportant for all of us.
I've hosted 12 folks this season an not a single person has left feedback about their stay. No feedback makes it difficult for someone to get current information about me and/or you as a host or a guest. Not to mention it's just rude.
Just my 2£ worth, sorry for the rant.....
I had a total of four guests (two of them came together as a couple). All of them left feedback here at the website, after I wrote feedback on them (as guests) first. The last guest also wrote a few lines in my guestbook; I did not yet have that before, otherwise the others would probably have written in it too.
